DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland’s unemployment rate climbed slightly to 4.6% in July from 4.5% in June, the central statistics office said on Tuesday.

Despite the small rise, the jobless rate is hovering at levels not seen since the end of 2006, a dramatic recovery from the financial crisis when the rate soared to 16%.
